The effects of COVID-19 on our Fiscal 2021 campus budget are significant and projected to be approximately $292 million. This budget shortfall is approximately divided 1/3 to state supported losses, and 2/3 to those losses associated with auxiliary units and other non-state activities. Plans to mitigate much of these financial impacts of COVID-19 are being guided by a commitment to sustain the excellence of our education, research and service missions, protect the health, safety and well-being of our campus community, and minimize the impact to the most vulnerable of our community.
We value input from our campus community. Please fill out our feedback form to share suggestions or report concerns about health and safety on campus.
